New Year UFOs! A Sort of Resolution

I want to be more organized this year. I want to finish some quilts that I started not too long ago and some that I started years ago. I figure the best way to stay on track is to list my projects for each month at the beginning of that month. That way I will have to stay on top of things and finish them. So here goes. These are the ones for January...

The first is the 'Healing Quilt' for my friend, Linda. Only a couple of blocks to go then it will have to be sandwiched and quilted. I figure that will only take a few days, maybe a week. I want her to have it as soon as possible.

My next project is the Bento Box quilt I started to make for Quilts from the Heart. It is all pieced and ready to be sandwiched and quilted. I want to have it done by the fourth Monday of this month. That's when our guild meets again.
I also want to finish this lap quilt. I used a bunch of blocks from a quilt along which I joined a long time ago. I think it was called 'Geese in the Forest' or something like that. I made the first 27 blocks, but then decided that I would never finish it. So I brought out those little flying geese units just before Christmas and sewed the geese blocks alternately with Christmas fabrics. It didn't get done before Christmas. I would like to finish it this month so as not to have so many UFOs hanging around.

And then of course, there is my hexagon wannabe quilt. Those little hexies are a lot of work now that I have moved to the outside of the quilt. This is not a 'to be finished' quilt. I only mention it here because I will continue to work on it in the evenings, while watching television. It is a work in progress.

wow, you have some amazing stuff going on there, good luck with it this month.

I was afraid that your RR was lost in the mail but have located it and my son now has it with a promise that he will get it too me quickly. when I get it, I will make a mad dash to finish my row up but I apologize that it will be late in coming. Thanks so much for your patience.

I can't even make myself focus on what projects to do yet this year. LOL

That sounds like a doable list. I hate to put pressure on myself so I really don't do the resolutions either.
Your hexie project is a nice one to always have to work on. I like projects like that.

This sounds very doable Hetty. I find having some kind of list/goals for the month/year helps to keep me focused. Things may change but at least oyu ahve an idea of what projects you ahve at hand. Good luck.

And this is only for the month January!... Wow, your gonna be busy.
I have my UFO's in little photo's at the side of my blog, so I see them every time I open my blog. Hopefully they remind me to get busy too.
So now a cup of tea and needle and thread.

Happy New Year Hetty. You seem to accomplish so much. I really like the way you are doing your hexagonal quilt, the colours are stunning.
